"This book is about the little things that interest or amuse me. It looks at - amongst other things - gated communities, naval history, failure, contemporary business practice and trees.
It is an attempt to explore, through drawing, the complexities of meaning that cloud and confuse even the smallest and simplest of things. It is also an attempt to present the world as I see it. An idiosyncratic world where observed physical realities mixes with language, thought and humour. A world that is strange, tragic and infinitely complex and where beauty and humour lurk in unexpected places. A world in which weathermen plan to lure tiny Herons down to guard and enjoy tiny spoon ponds and where Hugh Grant and I sit together drawing animals, but not speaking."
'Viv Stanshall, Samuel Beckett, Stanley Unwin and Ivor Cutler are dead, but Richard Dinnis is alive and comparatively well (touch wood). So all in all it's not a bad old life.'
